NEW YORK (CNN) - Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has signed a deal with St. Martin's Press to publish his new book, the publishing company announced Tuesday.

Romney, also a former contender for the Republican presidential nomination, has already written the book, called "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness." In the book, set to come out in March 2010, Romney discusses his "vision of a renewed America" and lay out his views on the economy, health care, energy and education, according to St. Martin's Press.

Romney is considered an early frontrunner for the White House race in 2012, according to recent polls, and raised $1.6 million through his political action committee in the first half of this year.

    Romeny couldn't even capture his partys nomination, yet he thinks he's important enough to read his book. Get over yourself Mitt, nobody cares.

    I hope he doesn't leave out the part about "I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help me Limbaugh".

    Another book from a washed up, also-ran, Republican. What is the title – Audacity of a dope?

    There are some here that think Romney is a self-made man as if he built his fortune from the ground up. Well I hate to break it to you
    Romney was born with a silver spoon in his mouth just like most Republican politicians. Here is the Republican base in a nutshell
    Very Religeous people Rich white men who were also born into wealth and want all they can get and white trash biggots, uneducated poor whites. and that pretty much sums it up.

    Good for Mitt, at least if he goes on book store, it won't be at taxpayer's expense like Obambi did. When Obambi was a US Senator he spent MORE time pimping his two books instead of working in the US Senate.

    Blah blah blah. Romney is a plastic Ken doll. The neo-cons just plug in what to say to appease the base and out comes Max Headroom dribble. Now chanting "no" makes sense.

    Romney is a far-right wing religious fanatic. If I wanted that for my president, I'd move to Iran.

    If he had all the answers, why isn't he in the White House? Why isn't he doing something other than writing a book for a big load of money? There may be a big load of something involved and it ain't money!

    Pray tell! Did Romney lay out his "vision" while Bush was in office?

    What's funny is that under then Gov. Romney, Massachusettes became the first State to mandate Universal Health Coverage! LOL! Now he's saying, Obama's plan is socialism. Can we say, hypocrit, flip flopper, opportunist, etc....

    Romney ran for governor in Michigan and lost then moved to Ma. to get elected.. He might be a businessman but he wants to be a politician..Something just isn't right with that..

    I can't wait to vote for Romney for President. It will be wonderful to have a real leader with solid experience in the White House.

    I wouldn't spend 1 cent on it, and wouldn't read it if he paid me.

    He's an idiot.
